    So some of you folks may have heard through the grapevine that there might just be a “Frankenstorm” coming. * But not to CMAC – at least I’m still a hopeless romantic!

    This storm has caused two of our original speakers to politely decline from coming on Sunday due to the potential for really bad and quite possibly dangerous traveling conditions. Some hurricane track models have CT as close to the area of landfall, but we just don’t know for sure.

    Both Murray Camp and Christine Williams let them know yesterday about their concerns of potentially having to travel poor weather. They told them to do what’s best and that safety is first.

    Lastly, just prior to their meet and greet, the gentlemen Wayde King and Brett Raymer will give us a quick 30 minute background talk about who they are, what they do, etc.
    So, as of right now (Saturday the 27th at 9:53 AM) our schedule of events is as follows:

    8:00-8:30 Conference Opens – Registration Table Opens

    8:30-9:00 Vendor Room Opens

    Again, to the best of my ability:

    Marc Levinson:

    "Sumps 101"

    Everything you need to know to make and informed decision.

    This topic covers everything conceivable to planning and installing a sump, including plumbing, electrical, tank stands, sump layouts, refugiums, lighting, evaporated water top off, and what to avoid..

    Justin Credebel:

    Goniopora Care and Hydrogen Peroxide Use:

    A review of Goniopora care, including system care, installing a system deshings, species requirements, and feeding.

    Also a primer on hydrogen peroxide and its use for pest removal and algae control.

    I hope this information helps!

    Also, the admission price is $30 at the door. If you bring along some non-perishable food to be donated to a local food shelter, they will give you a $5 discount.
